Superfood Soup

 

This superfood soup is an easy and tasty way to get your greens. And with colder weather outside, there’s nothing like a warming, creamy soup!!

 

This soup is so yummy, you might not be thinking about the health benefits, but there are many. Particularly important are the cruciferous vegetables … broccoli and kale. This family of vegetables is important because of the ingredient sulforaphane, which helps eliminate harmful toxic compounds in the body that might otherwise promote inflammation.

 

The greens are super nutrient-dense and the tahini boosts the creaminess as well as the calcium content. Check out this post for more details on superfoods.

 

Enjoy!
